Madison, Wis. - John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Stephen K. Randle, 25, of Madison, Wis., was sentenced yesterday by Chief U.S. District Judge William M. Conley to 72 months in federal prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release, for distribution of heroin in January 2010. Randle pleaded guilty to this charge on May 17, 2011.

Randle was sentenced based upon information that he and Marina Thomas had distributed a substantial amount of heroin in Madison for about a five-month period of time from late 2009 to early 2010. On March 15, 2011, Marina Thomas was sentenced to 96 months in federal prison for her involvement in the heroin distribution.

The charge against Stephen K. Randle was the result of an investigation conducted by the Dane County Narcotics and Gang Task Force. The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert A. Anderson.
